Fall Shimmerz

I recently purchased a few of those Shimmerz paints that everyone is raving about. I have to tell you it is worth raving about. This stuff is so easy to work with and has an amazing shimmer that really adds to anything you put it on. I will definitely be purchasing more!

I used it on the leaves in the image and also on the leaf I punched out of designer paper. The designer paper was a golden brown color and I painted Sagebrush green over it. I really like the color effect it made. This picture does not even begin to show how shimmery it is in real life. It is so pretty! I had a difficult time taking a picture that shows how glimmery it is.

The image stamp is Fun in the Fall by Great Impressions, the sentiment is Simple Things, also by Great Impressions. The sentiment is stamped on Papertrey white cut with Nestibilities Double Ended tags. The pattern paper is K & Company Fall Harvest Mat pad. I punched the leaf with my EK Success maple leaf punch, and the branches are a Martha Stewart punch. I used Papertrey Kraft for my card base and sponged Colorbox Chalk Chestnut Roan along all the edges. I also inked the edges of my pattern papers. The ribbon is from Target's dollar spot and the leaf brad is from my stash.

I purchased both my Shimmerz paints and my stamps from RK Stamps. They have a great selection and terrific service!

Have a blessed weekend!
